Vegan Rôti de Porc Grand' Mère

[Vegan Casserole Roasted Pork with Potatoes and Onions]

...Julia gives no notes on the history of this dish... and why it's called Grandmother's...I guess it's just the comfort food aspect of this casserole...
...so...first thing was to wash some small new potatoes...
...I had made a smaller version of this Rôti de Porc...and roasted it first alone...then when it's cooked you add it to the casserole with the potatoes and pearl onions...that have been boiled for 5 minutes in salted water...
...Julia says that this dish derives it's delicious flavor from the potatoes and onions cooking in the juices...so had to some juice of course...this is two packets of Washington's broth...one brown and one golden...
....then you just cover and cook the casserole until everything is done...basting the potatoes and onions a couple of times...
...served with some 'cheese-y' cauliflower, steamed watercress...and a roll...
...and it was delicious...
